Frozen Waterfalls

A long-time friend and I decided to take the scenic route into Portland on Friday for our ‘Girls Day Lunch Adventure’ and we were rewarded with a magical winter wonderland.

Steider Studios.Horsetail Falls 1.2.15

Our first stop was Horsetail Falls and it was spectacular.  The walkway was very icy but worth the risk of slipping to see the sparkly ice up close.

Icicles hung off all the cliffs and each of the big iconic waterfalls along the old highway majestically roared against icy canyon walls.

Our next stop was Multnomah Falls and it was stuffed with photographers.  We bundled up and walked up to the bridge but did not hike any of the trails beyond.

It was more of a fun girlfriend day out filled with laughter and memories along with a little awe, rather than a photographer’s holiday.  No tripod, no hiking boots, no rain gear just my camera and a semi-steady hand.

Our last stop was Latourell Falls and again we were mesmerized by sparkly white ice, the roar and majesty of these frozen waterfalls.

For scale, the red splash in the lower left corner in the photo above is another photographer who braved the icy trail.

We finished our drive through the Columbia River Gorge and had a lovely lunch in Troutdale, then decided we’ll have to make this outing a regular occurrence!

  4. Great photos! Of course my favorite is Multnomah Falls. Hard to believe Dan & I were in that very spot in October.

    We are looking forward to our next trip out to the NW (no dates yet) and getting a chance to meet you in person Linda! For now, we will continue to live vicariously through your wonderful photographs.


  5. Thanks so much Kathleen, I look forward to meeting you too!


  6. I saw the article about you in this month’s Ruralite.

    Years ago, while working at the Klickitat County Fair, I saw the most beautiful quilt I had ever seen. The quilter was an unknown name to me.
    Linda Steider.
    You have since, moved on to be a well known name with your artistic talents.


  7. Aw, Laurene, thank you so much!! I truly appreciate you sharing my blog on Glenwood Weather & HR Weather!! Where are you during the day, next time I’m in Glenwood I’ll treat you to a cup of coffee or tea!
